It's Official!

Okay, today it is official! I turned 25! I have a confession to make... I have been having a hard time with this b-day. My best friend termed it a "quarter life crisis." However, now that I am actually 25, I have been blessed with sudden wisdom. Okay, not really, but I have been thinking about this for the past several weeks. I think part of the reasons I have been struggling are that my "plan" for my life has really not happened. But, in my moments in between freaking out, here is what I have realized:

In my 25 years I have:
* been a nanny
* worked for Walt Disney World
* been a first responder, CNA, EMT-Basic and dispatcher
* lived in somewhere over 15 different houses
* become an auntie
* lived on my own, with roommates, and with family (and those I count as family)
* made friends
* kept most of those friends
* learned how amazingly cool my parents actually are
* and much more

Most importantly, however, it is not what I have done that makes me who I am. No matter what, I am a daughter of God. I have a loving Father in Heaven who knows me... really knows me. Better than I know myself. awesome.

Anyhoo, as far as my actual birthday went, I spent the day at work (I know, not so fun) then ran over the tech rehearsal for the chorale. Our concert is coming up next weekend, so we sang for 3 1/2 hours! And let me tell you, it is fun to have a choir sing Happy Birthday! I got a grill from my folks (yep, I get to learn how to grill) and all the accoutrement's needed.

So, chalk it up to another year!

Happy Birthday babe! I feel like we've completely lost touch, but I'm glad to hear that you are doing well.
Loff ya!

Happy belated birthday!!

And good luck using that grill! (You are going to be fighting off guys with sticks now, I tell you. A cute, funny, sweet gal like yourself ... who knows her way around slightly-charred animal flesh?? That's like winning the freakin' Powerball, as far as marriages go! ^_^)
